Brother, Sister, Mother, Explorer

By Jamie Figueroa
Narrated by: Joana Garcia
Length: 6 hours 7 minutes

Brother, Sister, Mother, Explorer

“One of a number of excellent debut novels already out in the still-new year, this is a singular work. Taking on the coming-of-age from young adulthood into something deeper and more mature, the story follows a sister and brother as they reckon with their mother’s passing and begin to understand what life should and should not be as it gets lived. Their tourist town of Ciudad de Tres Hermanas gives us not only a vivid picture of the present but casts a knowing eye on the layers of the past. Beautifully done.”
